Right now your milk is the only source of nutrition for our baby.moreover the first 7 days baby would.loose all water weight.so you would find some loss of weight in baby ,which is normal.but baby should gain back the birth weight in next three weeks .and with in first three months baby must double the birth weight .frequent feeding especially every 2-3 hours in first month and then 3-4 hours in second month is must for healthy weight gain.you need to eat healthy so that baby gains faster.,you need to consume:
1-eat balanced diet including fresh vegetables and fruits
2- increase your diet by eating extra 500 calories in a day
3- include lot of proteins, especially from animal meat.like egg,chicken,mutton ,fish
4- drink plenty of water too
Feed from one breast full,only then hind milk,which is the richest milk can be accessible to your baby.foremilk is thinner and only quenches thirst

Question: How long will it take for babies to roll over from back to front?
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help.
Babies probably will be able to roll over when the baby is about six months or seven months, when the neck and arm muscles are strong enough. Some babies manage to roll over as early as three months, but other babies take longer than seven months.
